To take advantage of the deals at the grocery store, you will often want more than one copy of the Sunday coupon inserts. But paying an average of $2 each for multiple Sunday papers can get expensive. So here are some ways that you can get some extra coupon inserts for free or at least for less than the regular cost of the newspaper.

Check your local recycling

If there is an area where people in your own drop off their recycling, you may be able to look through the old papers to find lots of extra inserts that have been discarded.

Check with neighbors, friends and family

Many neighbors, friends and family would be happy to save the coupon inserts for you if they don’t use them themselves. You could also check with coworkers.

Check local coffee houses

If you live near a Starbucks, Panera Bread or other establishment, make a visit on Sunday nights and take a look in the recycling bin. Often people read the Sunday paper while enjoying their coffee or snack and then discard the papers.

Check the local new stand or convenience store.

If the owner or manager of the convenience store is nice, he or she may let you have all of the coupon inserts that are left over from the newspapers at the end of the day on Sunday.

Check for a Sunday preview

The Sunday preview papers that come out on Saturday may be half the cost. In my area, the price is the same, but in many other areas, this paper, which contains all of the inserts, will be less expensive.

Check with the paper delivery person

Often the paper delivery person will have extra inserts after assembling all of the papers. So ask if you may have them, or start delivery papers yourself!

Check the local dollar store

Our dollar store sells the $2 Sunday papers for only $1. Half price is a great thing.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
